  4. App for YouTube Gaming on Xbox One

    App for the YouTube Gaming on XONE - similiar to YouTube app who already exist and are avaiable for XONE. YouTube Gaming is a new service of Games videos only. It is perfect to see on XONE.

    [Mod edit: This idea was merged with a similar post from Viizion ToZe, who specifies that the app should be usable for broadcasting to YouTube as well.]

  6. Make an ID@Xbox app

    There are many games appearing with the ID@Xbox program, but its hard to keep track of all of them and we end up missing some really interesting stuff.

    Would be cool to keep track of everything new its coming to the program, including release dates, descriptions, screenshots, trailers, a favorite tab, and even a "direct link" to the store when the game is released!

    That way gamers will be able to get much more informed about the increasing list of new independent developed games, its also a good way to give those developers products more exhibition So please, do it!

  7. Import Spotify Playlist into Groove

    I have a couple Spotify playlists I'd like to import to Xbox Music. I have an Xbox Music and Spotify subscription, but to convenience of playing from the Xbox the playlists I create on the go would be sweet.

  10. Media player update

    The Xbox One Media player is so far behind the launch media player with the 360, Some of my issues with it;

    1. It only plays videos, you can't turn it off and resume later, it just plays them from the start.

    2. It automatically plays the next Video, how annoying, I want to watch a movie from my Movies folder than It just plays the next one.

    3. It only has pause, fast forward and rewind options, the 360 had subtitles, screen size options for stretch and wide, info on the video, how long remaining.

    4. I have to…

  12. Xbox E3 Experience At Home

    I have always dreamed about going to E3 like many other gamers around the world.

    A lot of gamers can't make the trip to Los Angeles for the week of E3 due to financial, health, and many other possible reasons.

    Wouldn't it be cool if you could bring the "E3 Experience" to people's homes around the world?

    Microsoft, create and app that allows Xbox One gamers to demo Xbox One E3 show floor games at home. So it's like bringing E3 home to Xbox One gamers around the world.

    Watching E3 game streams is cool, but I think I can…

  13. Integrate Forums into the New Xbox One Experience

    With the new upcoming Xbox One Dashboard/Experience, there is a new Community tab.

    It would be great to have the Xbox.com forums integrated into the console, so we can reply and post on the forums from our consoles, and use Cortana to type our posts for us!

  14. How about a system repair and diagnostic app?

    Last night I spent over 3 hours on the phone with a support agent. I was having problems installing a game for the kids. The Xbox was throwing 3 error codes. One was a common issue I found 47 search results for. It would be nice if when an error code pops up it would hyperlink to a description of common reasons for that issue. My issue happened to span from a game trying to be installed that was for a pc apparently. I found it in the game installation place. It wouldn't uninstall by going tother it and pushing…

  15. Unify the media apps on xbox one

    Now that we have DLNA, USB playback support coming I am wondering if maybe its time that we get a unified app for all this media!

    Heres why.
    We have Xbox Video for our digital media, we have Xbox music for again our digital media, we now have the Media App (which tbh looks really plain going by the video preview currently out) and we have the blu-ray player for are physical media then last theres the audio CD player.
    I think the team should look into incorporating them into fewer apps!

    E.g, Xbox Video should have the Video support…

  16. The ability to close all apps without having to restart your Xbox

    Sometimes my Xbox tends to get slow/lag because of all the apps that our running. When you put the Xbox into instant mode, it dosent close your apps, hence the fast boot to be able to play games faster.

    I would like a way to close all apps so I don't have to take the time to restart my Xbox everytime. I was thinking they could add it to the menu that pops up when you hold the XB button to turn off the console or turn of the system, for easy access.

  18. Snap in a window (Picture in Picture)

    Snap mode is great but I find that it takes up more space than needed for just watching a video. Something like Picture in Picture (PiP) mode would be ideal so that way you could have Live TV or Netflix snapped to a corner on the screen of your choosing so it does not get in the way of the games HUD while still having the game you are playing full screen.

  19. Europe wants more Apps!

    In Europe, especially Germany, there are only a few apps available.
    Today i changed my Xbox One to a US console to watch the E3 Briefing, because the german translater was very annoying.

    So i took a look at the US Xbox App Store and there were lots of Apps i have never seen at the german store. So please, we are also owners of the Xbox One and we want to have the same service!

  20. Export Game DVR clips/Captures to USB

    Allow us to export our Game DVR clips directly to USB for editing/combining/sharing on our PCs (in the original format/quality rather than compressed).

    It's frustrating to have to wait to upload to SkyDrive, then download back down to my PC even though they're only 2 feet away from each other.
